About AIChE Spring Meeting

The AIChE® Spring Meeting is the year’s key technical conference for practicing chemical engineers. A wide range of subjects relevant to the current needs of industry is covered. Plus, the Global Congress on Process Safety covers the critical needs of process safety practitioners more broadly and deeply than any other conference.

AIChE Spring Meeting Focused on applications of technology in core, and emerging, process areas, the AIChE Spring Meeting delivers a highly receptive audience of close to 1,500 buyers and influencers. Session tracks include: Industry 4.0 & Big Data Analytics, Fuels & Petrochemicals, Distillation, Process Development and Gas Utilization.

About GCPS

Global Congress on Process Safety (GCPS) Nearly 1,000 attendees make this the largest gathering of chemical process safety professionals in the world. This annual event is the primary forum to share practical and technological advances in all aspects of process safety.

Poster Session: Industry 4.0 & Big Data Analytics
In this poster session, contributions are sought in the area of large-scale analysis algorithms amenable to mining time-resolved process data, as well as to transactional data collected in the course of enterprise-wide operations. The effective use of data-rich sources are of interest for this session, such as images and video feeds, and of information from broadly deployed wireless sensors. Big data Analytics developments that result in novel, hidden insights in process operability and control, improved energy efficiency and process sustainability are also of interest in this poster session. Also of interest are novel means for big data visualization and for conveying ever increasing amounts of information to process operators in real time.

Big Data Analytics – Vendor Perspective Session:
Date: Wed, April 1
Session Time: 8 AM – 11:45 AM

TrendMiner Presentation Title: Next Generation Industrial Analytics: Software for Process Experts
TrendMiner Presentation Time: 9:00 AM – 9:30 AM

This invited session will focus on available commercial big data analytics tools/software for modeling and optimization of processes that can be applied in the chemical, petrochemical, pharmaceutical, food and semiconductor industries. Participants will highlight how these tools are relevant for extracting key information (from high-dimensional data sets) for continuous and batch type processes, where advanced analytical tools based on statistical approaches, data mining, optimization theory are utilized to identify the following tasks from data: (1) regression and forecasting; (2) process optimization (i.e. cycle time reduction, process understanding and troubleshooting); (3) fault and outlier detection; (4) clustering and classification analysis; and (5) visualization.
